Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care in K-12 Schools—The LIHNKS Project
30-Minute Roundtable Session, Advanced
Jolie Daigle, Jason Cavin
The LIHNKS (Linking Integrated Health Networks for Kids in Schools) Project is a result of an HRSA-funded, behavioral health workforce grant. The project aims to increase primary care and behavioral health care for children, adolescents, and transitional-age youth at risk for mental health-related disorders. The training model will be presented so that counselors can learn ways to reduce barriers and facilitate treatment management, prevention/postvention strategies, and evidenced-based treatments and approaches.
